Heavy Duty Concentrated Aluminum Cleaner and Etch

BC-7000 is a highly concentrated metal cleaner primarily designed to clean aluminum to promote better adhesion of primers to aluminum surfaces. Spray or wipe on and then rinse with clean water. BC-7000 contains sodium hydroxide as the active ingredient.

  • Good Cleaning – effectively removes heavy soils.
  • Aluminum cleaning and etch – when used 12 ounces cleaner to 1 gallon of water. Stronger mixes up to 50% will etch smooth aluminum better than 10% solutions.
  • Liquid Form – for ease of handling, measuring and mixing.
  • Highly concentrated – for economical use.


How to Use:

For heavy cleaning, dilute 1 part BC-7000 with 5 parts of water. Apply to surface with a pressure sprayer. Rinse with clean water. For aluminum etch, use 12 – 64 oz BC-7000 to 1 gallon of water. Spray on and let sit for 2-3 minutes but do not allow it to dry on parts. Rinse while BC-7000 mix is still wet.

Mix BC-7000 metal cleaner with cool water. Because of the alkaline nature, we recommend protective clothing, rubber gloves, and face shield when using.
